    I had been getting headaches about 12-15 per month. I am taking 30mg each night. It seemed to kick in after 6 weeks and I did not have a headache for 16 days- a miracle for me. Unfortunately it did not last and shortly after I was back to headaches 3-4 each week.

    started this med 3 wks. ago for neuropathic pain and headaches. Titrated dosage up to 3 pills daily. pain is gone, however, attitude and mood swings are a problem, along with dry mouth and blurred vision. I will continue for a while longer to see if these side affects lessen with time. The relief from the pain is great.

    I was put on this medication for abdominal discomfort that would not be relieved by any other medication. Simply stated...a nervous stomach. Also, irritable bowel. It has been a life saver for me. I have no further problems...for the most part. I was having so many problems with gas, bloating and stomach discomfort. All of these symptoms are gone.

    The second day I was on it I broke down emotionally further than I ever have before. So I made the mistake and stopped taking it for 2 days. I was originally put on it for headaches that weren't related to migrains or cluster headaches.
